Add a PVP Server

This has long been a requested addition to our cluster. I feel that it’s something we can and should explore, with the following caveats, in no particular order. 1. No connected to the PVE servers/cluster. Nothing can be transferred to or from the PVP server, period. Keeps everyone on an even playing field that way. 2. Offline Raid Protection enabled. 3. Slightly boosted rates. Not as generous as the ones on the main Domi cluster, but higher than official. Something like 5x across the board. 4. “ARKpocalypse” server settings, where the map/server wipes ever x IRL days. Prevents an alpha tribe from being on top forever. 5. Gamma disabled. 6. Alliances disabled. 7. Admins won’t play PVP, so that there is zero chance of any cheating going on. As such, there will be a minimal admin presence, with admins only coming on to enforce a few rules, such as somebody being racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic in chat for example. 8. Minimal rules. The majority of the rules from the PVE cluster won’t apply, such as limits on how many bases you can have and how big they are. Rules can be made and enforce by tribes if they can enforce them. Might makes right. 9. Different game modes and settings that change from instance to instance. After a wipe and reset, some of the rules might change. For example, we might disable taming of dinos for a run, or enable small tribes, or disable Tek Engrams. Things we can do that the community votes on that add extra challenge to the PVP. I think if we add a PVP server with these terms and rules, it could/would be an asset to Domination. Please vote in favor of this if you agree. Thank you.

    Why would alliances be disabled? There are perks on pvp servers for that.

    Also, what about trolling? Locking people in cages, blocking spawn points, etc.? Trying to get a picture here of what would be against the rules, especially with the part of minimal admin presence.

    I like the idea and agree it should be seperate from the main cluster. Just initial thoughts. 🙂

    Alliances would be disabled as a side effect of ORP being enabled. It’s automatically disabled because the devs are too lazy to put in the work to figure out how it would work with alliances. GG WildCard.

    As for trolling, locking people up, blocking spawn points, all of those would be allowed, as you could break people out of cages and destroy stuff blocking spawn points. Might would again make right.

    My comment would also to make the server a transfer out only server. Keep people from bringing big things into the server.
